City of Dallas, VNA to re-launch in-home vaccinations

The City of Dallas and Visiting Nurse Association of Texas will use Moderna vaccines in its re-launch of the in-home vaccination program starting April 19.

Officials said residents who were scheduled to receive in-home shots this week will be rescheduled for next week.

They paused the rollout Tuesday due to guidance from the CDC and FDA regarding the use of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.

"While the two-shot Moderna vaccine poses logistical challenges, we are committed to vaccinate our most vulnerable population as quickly and safely as possible," officials said.
